If I'm not mistaken I believe that llamas and alpacas we bred down from native quanacos and vicunas in South America by early native people there (Mayan or Aztec maybe), and they are related to camels. Hey Stephan your humor is alive and well !
I bet that they all taste good roasted on a spit over an open fire, heck what doesn't !
When I saw those peacocks to give away It reminded me of a news story I saw a few years back. At the San Diego zoo they have peacocks running around loose among the zoo visitors and they are very tame. Zoo officials caught some illegal alien from Mexico who was plucking the big showy tail feathers out of the male peacocks, then he would try to sell them to other zoo visitors right there in the zoo !

They do grow back even when cut. They molt on their own anyway, that's why you can find them laying on the ground sometimes. I thought it was kind of funny too when I first read of it. I think I have kind of a sick sense of humor though after all I had a subscription to Mad Magazine when I was a kid. Heck I love a good hidden camera show, I think Jamie Kennedy is doing Allan Funt proud !

I loved Mad Magazine........Haven't read one since the early to mid 80's when I was in school. I've glimpsed at an issue here and there since, they didn't look anything like they did when I used to read them. I don't think they are that popular these days. I thought they were starting to loose their appeal back when I was in school .
